AS Russ Howard entered the great chamber that 
J~\. was the study of Philip Stang, world's fore- 
most student of the occult, he felt for the hun- 
dredth time its air of mystery. For this room, 
illuminated by a single blue lamp, was like some- 
thing in another plane of existence. The dim, eerie 
light playing over hook lined walls, the somber 
shadows cast by the purple curtains, the electric 
presence of Philip Stang himself, all gave Russ a 
feeling of other worldliness. 

And Philip's midnight summons had been 
urgent! ' 

Yet, despite the urgency of his call, gaunt-faced 
Philip Stang now made no move to rise and greet 
his friend. He continued to sit in the deep chair, 
apparently lost in thought. His piercing hlack eyes, 
sunken in their sockets, stared straight ahead as 
though transfixed by what they saw. Only his eye- 
lids flickered, acknowledging Russ' arrival. 

Following the line of Stang's gaze. Russ' eyes 
came to rest upon a strange object lying in the 
center of the small table before them, an inch thick, 
bluish white object about three inches long. The 
object, in itself, seemed harmless enough, an inani- 
mate thing arousing in him no particular emotion. 
But in these surroundings, with his friend so en- 
tranced by it, Russ felt his flesh crawl. 

Shuddering, he tore his eyes from the object and 
fixed his gaze upon the worn, handsome face of the 
older man. "What is it : " 

With the exaggerated slowness of a sleepwalker. 
Philip Stang pointed a bony finger at a chair. Russ 
sat down, expectantly. 

'Stang chose his words carefully. "I have told you 
that the late Jan Jardini. the famous student of 
the occult, was my friend But I did not tell you 
that Jan promised me before he died that he would 
use his vast knowledge of the supernatural in an 
effort to overcome the barrier between this world 
and the next. After he died he hoped to return to 
earth with the secrets of life and eternity which he 
would impart to me." 

The feeling of uneasiness mounted in Russ 
Howard. Whenever his friend spoke of the super- 
natural, his thin veneer of normality slipped from 



him like a dropped cloak. An intense burning light 
in his eyes seemed to betray an incipient madness. 
The light shone in Philip's eyes now, a dark mirror 
of the man's soul. 

"Jardini has kept his word. He has returned," 
Philip continued. "For many years I have held to 
the one tangible link that he needed to effect the 
transmigration. Now, at last, he has done it. To- 
night, he spoke to me, right here in this room, 
through the medium of the memento he willed 
to me." 

Stang paused, as though his mind had suddenly 
made contact with forces beyond the ken of mortal 
man. Again, he was staring fixedly at the object 
on the table. 

"Memento?" Russ prompted. 

Stang did -not reply immediately. Then his an- 
swer came, a husky, low -throated whisper. "Yes, 
Jardini's jaw. That's it, there on the table. No— 
don't pick it up!" 

Russ Howard had never fully shared Stang's 
belief in the supernatural. But out of respect for 
his friend, he muffled a snort of laughter. This was 
too ridiculous! Philip was allowing himself to be 
carried too far in his search for the occult and the 
fantastic. "Are you trying to tell me this — this bit 
of bone on the table is Jardini's jaw, and that it 
can speak to you, tell you what's going on in the 
other world! - ' 

"That's exactly what I'm telling you." replied 
Philip Stang "I asked you to come over because I 
am fearful of what I will learn tonight. If anything 
should happen to me as a result of the knowledge 
I will gain when Jardini returns, I want you to 
know that you, Russ, are my sole heir. Every penny 
I have in the world will be yours, everything I own, 
this house, my books, even my most priceless 
possession, Jardini's jaw!" 

"Philip, this is *heer madness! Why, why do you 
want to pierce the veil ol the beyond? Can't you 
lorget this thing, drive it out of your Blind?" 

Philip Stang suddenly looked very tired and 
older than his sixty years. "What would you do, 
Russ? Would you decline to learn the secrets of lift 
and immortality? Could you resist — could you, if 



the jaw had extended the same invitation to you?" inrredihle terror, a mute testimonial that he 'nacf 5 

Russ Howard shuddered. "You are right, Philip. seen that which no m;in dares look upon— and live! , 

No man could resist — but this is impossible! How Philip Stang was dead! 

could a mere chip of bone—" Panic clutched out for him in the near-darkness.' 

"1 will know! I must!" Stang said determinedly. He felt a wild urge to start running, running any- 
"I have spent thirty years of my life seeking the where, never to stop until even his mind had out- 
knowledge that I shall gain tonight. I cannot stop distanced his memory. His trembling hand had 
now, not when that knowledge is almost within reached the door latch, when: 
my grasp!" The light in Philip Stang's eyes grew "Wait!"The word came fror» nowhere, a ghostly, 
even more intense, and his voice rose to an uncanny drawn out whisper like an icy wind rushing into a 
pitch. "Think of it, man! Think of it! Tonight, cave. It filled the room with cold horror, and it

IIION'T care how old or young you arc.

condition you may be. If you can simply 
raise your arm and flex it I can add SOI..ID 
MUSCLE to your biceps— yes. on each arm 
-in double-quick time! Only 15 minutes a 
day— right in your own home— is all ihe 
time I ask of you! And there's no cost if 
I fail. 

I can broaden your shoulders, strengthen 
your back, develop your whole muscular 
system INSIDE and OUTSIDE! I can add 
inches to your .chest, give you a vise-like 
grip, make those legs of yours lithe and 
powerful. I can shoot new strength into 
your old backbone, exercise those inner or- 
gans, help you cram your body so full of 
pep. vigor and red-blooded vitality that you 
won't feel there's even "standing room" 
left for weakness and that lazy feeling! 
Before I get through with you I'll have your 
whole frame "measured" to a nice, new 
beautiful suit of muscle! 

What's My Secret?
